Playwriting for Performance


Using the tools of visual images, body movement, and voice students will embark on writing dramatic narrative in the form of monologues, dialogic exchanges or short scenes. Themes could include family relationships, friendships, personal choice, interpersonal communication, social responsibility, and/or our relationship with nature and the larger environment. Students will learn artistic vocabulary pertinent to dramatic writing such as the metaphor, theme, character development (protagonist/antagonist, character wants/needs, action), and a story arc (beginning, middle, end). Each session will involve a combination of writing and performance.
